Nice looking stopper!   I've been using the 3-lobed 'Ashley Stopper Knot,' but that one looks a little more bulky and less likely to slip through a larger pulley.....thanks for another great tutorial!  :thumbsup:

It looks like a fun knot!

I have problems visualizing in 3D, especially when it involves moving parts.  So I was lost at step 3.  :)

I'm certain if someone demonstrated it in front of me I'd be able to pick it up.  But unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to learn knots from still pictures.  Even the Animated Knots website trips me up once in a while.

<sigh>

I hope this might help.  The strand end on the left stays put.  You are only moving the right hand end.
Bring the cord over itself to make the first loop
In the same way make a second loop atop the first
Now you have a path to weave from right to left to going over the first strand, under the second, over the first and over the fourth
Now bring the cord from left to right crossing over the stationary end
Now bring the cord over the first strand on the right, under two strands and up through triangle in the middle of the knot
The most difficult part comes now.  Gradually tighten the knot. Do not try to remove all the slack in one go.  Start at either end and follow the knot around giving the cord a slight pull as you go under each crossing of the knot
